Patrick Tam's exploration : creating a 'new woman' image twenty years ago

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook Chapter

Abstract

In this paper, I wish to discuss the works for television and cinema of New Wave director Patrick Tam. The reason for this paper is the lack of discussion about this highly creative Hong Kong director in discourses on the contemporary cinemas of mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. I will try of fill this void before the dawn of the next century, and perhaps before more history is destroyed by the millennium bug.
